Superman Won't Save You


"Nobody can save you but yourself and you're worth saving.
 It's a war not easily won but if anything is worth winning then this is it."
-Charles Bukowski

As I plan my Thanksgiving grocery list, I find myself thinking how different it feels this year. There is a sense of uncertainty. Like many of you, I am also fearful with the direction of our country, and the direction of our world. I know that uncertainty and instability can cause chaos within ourselves. We all want to be assured that we will be ok. We all need to feel that we are going to be taken care off. Unfortunately, superman can’t save you. Only when you decided to be your own hero can you save yourself and influence others. It’s going to be up to you to change whatever situation you are dealing with to a prosperous one. Don’t expect world leaders to fix your problems. Rise above your problems, and as you do you become the shining light that will guide others to do the same. Step out of your comfort zone, be change you want to see in your home, community and your world. More than ever we need beacons of light that will bring light to the injustices of the world. More than ever we need you to step up for the scapegoats of our nation. There are no accidents in life, just life lessons. There are lessons in what is going on with the world. Lessons we may have forgotten, lessons that will remind us that our power is found in our human spirit. We have much to learn about our true purpose in this planet. Today I want to challenge you to get uncomfortable, to fight for your joy and happiness. Know that we can no longer blame others to be the cause of our misery and expect others to bring us joy and certainty. It’s YOU, and only you that has the power to transform your life and impact the life of others.  Are you willing to give up some comfort to create a better world for you and others? Here are three tips on how to be the change you want to see.

What is something you would like to change in your home, community or world?
The key to being a change agent, is to identify what you want to change. What is something that drives you insane? What do you desire? Do you wish people were kinder to each other? Are you seeking more connection? Do you wish there was no more prejudice? I believe that we all have a purpose a mission in life. We are all impacting the world with our life views and ideas. What moves you? When we identify what we would like to change we transcend in purpose. We all have a mission for our lives, there is significance in discovering what that is and pursuing that change. My mission is to inspire you to believe in your dreams, by defining all limiting beliefs. I also seek to remind you that love was the superpower given to us by our creator to change the world. Yet, many have surrendered to fear.

You can do something big or small.
To be the change you must immolate what you are seeking to change. For example, if you are seeking less prejudice in the world are you being open and inviting to people that may be different than you? If you are seeking more kindness, be the example of kindness and love. As you change your old ways you will influence others to do the same. It’s your light that will bring clarity to others. It’s easier to point fingers and blame others for problems, be the solution, be the change. It’s the little things you do that will have major ripple effects in your family, community and the world.

Your success is dependent on taking care of yourself.
You can’t change the world if you don’t change and take care of yourself. Love yourself. It’s about listening to your inner wisdom. Taking care of your body, mind and soul. When you are an advocate for yourself, you can better affect those around you. You give them the best of you and they in return give you their best. As I become aware of the love for myself I can give more to others. When you value and respect your being, it gives other permission to love and respect themselves.

Our world needs your help. It is those who have decided to be the change they want to see that have indeed changed the world. Know that you are capable of influencing others with your good deeds. It’s your mission to seek change for the better. To be successful in changing the world you must take care of yourself and reflect what you want to see in the world. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and be grateful for all the blessings in your life. Until next Monday, Believe. Change. Become!
